Hope somebody can help me ... I'm going through hell. I've been losing my hair gradually over the last three years. Around December 2015 , it started to get REALLY bad and my hairline All around my head took a real hit. I'd seen several trichologists who kept on telling me that my hairloss was a symptom of low ferritin . So I took steps to raise my ferritin to 90 as advised - this , I was told , would get my hair growing thick again. . In March 2015 , my ferritin was 29. By July 2015 it was 60 and by January 2016 it was up to 83. When my ferritin was tested in January , my thyroid (TSH) was also checked and was 0.88. I was told this was normal. Off I went , thinking all I had to worry about was getting my hair back. However....it just kept getting thinner. It has destroyed my life . I'm 38 years old , and always loved getting glommed up and going out. Now I just hide in my house crying. Anyway - around the 5th Feb , I noticed a lump in my neck. I was told it was a thyroid nodule. At the same time , I developed GERD , and was very distressed by it all. When I went to hospital to have a fine needle aspiration on the lump , I was told that there was another nodule deeper in my neck on the side of the thyroid. They tried to get the needle into it to draw fluid ( it was awful) and couldn't get anything out . I was told a week later that it looked too small on the scan to be anything serious so they discharged me. The lump in the front disappeared , and I'm not sure what happened to the lump that was further inside ? However , I continue to have strange symptoms. Tingling in hands and arms ( sometimes in face , legs, feet). Waking with small bruises in places where I know I haven't injured myself , sensitivity to cold , fatigue , Dry , rubbery skin on face and body , extreme thinning of hair on scalp , diminished pubic hair , and loss of arm hair , periods much heavier , digestive problems, sore throat , dry mouth, fluttering in ears , ..... I'm convinced I have a thyroid problem . I'm so sick of being told that my thyroid is okay when my gut feeling is that it's not . I am wanting to pay a private endocrinologist ( Dr Trainer , Manchester) because I want my hair back badly and I don't want some GP throwing thyroxine at me .... Has anybody ever had an experience like this ? Could there be a problem despite what my TSH levels say ???
